    Can’t the blogpost be served as Slide alternative?

    Thanks for sharing the blog post. The current talk can be absorbed by reading the blog post. It is uninteresting in the present form.

    For the talk to be useful, you have to explain:

    1. What is the problem that R with Shiny solves?
    2. Which other tools can we use for solving the same problem? Why does R with Shindy stand out? What are the comparison metrics?
    3. Explain use cases of R with Shiny. Also explain what are the limitations of this tool.
    4. Show before-after scenario. What improvements can be achieved with R with Shiny? What are the tradeoffs of using this tooling?

      Sorry Zainab, That’s my bad to share that link as an alternative. The idea was to cover the points in the outline, that pretty much covers the points you mentioned and will make sure to all those you have given. I’ve got a question: This was submitted as a Workshop but based on your points, It seems like a talk, Could you please let me know which one you find this more fitting in?
